    The real issue is that the RNCC endorsed this juvenile parody video, and that it seems like they added additional comments about Obama and Hitler having similar goals.

    My point earlier is that if we get up in arms about the internet meme itself, we look like we don't know what we're talking about and open ourselves up to attacks for all of the anti-Palin or anti-McCain Downfall vids out there. We saw 2 examples of those upthread.

    So again, we should be hammering the fact that the RNCC endorsed this in a tweet and linked a page with a bunch of comments about Obama being like Hitler. Attacking the whole "Hitler Downfall Parody" meme would be like the Right attacking the whole "Zombie McCain" meme. Privately we can laugh, find it distasteful, or ignore it.

    We need to recognize the real issue which is that the RNCC endorsed this on a tweet.
